Not long finished watching Red Hot Chilli Peppers close the second day of T in The Park on BBC4 as presented by Edith Bowman, they were as energised as ever and have lost none of their touch. Over two hours filled with one of the hottest bands to come from the States , (thank you America) their performance was electrifying and worth staying up till the wee (early) hours for. During their two they many of their infamous hits including Under The Bridge, By The Way, Universally Speaking, Go Robot, Goodbye Angels including their one of their earlier hits, Give it Away. There are a few words I can use to describe tonight, ‘well and truly amazing guys, come back soon’. As a fan of RHCP I absolutely loved tonights’ gig.
America, thank you for giving us one of the coolest bands tonight. We, or at least I salute you.
Just finished watching world renowned DJ/Producer Calvin Harris headline at T in The Park tonight on BBC4, as presented by Edith Bowman. And it’ll be the second time he’s performed there since 2014. Over two hours of sheer musical bliss and stage effects this was one headline you’ll be glad if you caught it. I know I am. The set tonight included remixes and collaborations from Rhiannon (Found Love), Ellie Goulding ( I Need Your Love), Ne-Yo (Let’s Go), Ayah Mara (Thinking About You). Further tracks included samples by Adele (Hello) and Daft Punk (One More Time). Definitely worth staying up for.
Further coverage included performances by Bastille, Travis, Kaiser Chiefs, Jack Garratt, Tom Odell, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Last Shadow Puppets. Overall it’s been a great night so far.
Today was the start of the infamous musical mecca of T in The Park and this time from its new location at Strathallan. With coverage presented by the incredible Scotswoman Edith Bowman on BBC4 (glad she’s not left the BBC) saw today’s highlights jam pack with live performances by Disclosure, Fun Lovin Criminal, The Courteeners and Jamie XX, all absolutely incredible. There was a new band on called Frightened Criminals who, I have to say, where just amazing. It was Alesso who stole the stole as the main headlining act with his electrifying set. Also there was an aftershow gig featuring a new duo called Roderigo Y Gabriela who were really good.
